Biblical Astronomy

1. Creation of the luminaries and the stars on the fourth day - Genesis 1:14-19

Then God said, “Let there be luminaries in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for luminaries in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary to govern the day, and the lesser luminary to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

Note 1 - the sun and the moon are separated from the stars
Note 2 - the so-called wandering stars are not separated from the stars
Note 3 - the sun rules the day while the moon and the stars rule the night - Psalm 136:9
Note 4 - the luminaries and the stars were created between the morning and the evening
Note 5 - the luminaries and the stars were created as if they were marking the fourth day
Note 6 - the luminaries and the stars are for signs, for seasons, for days and for years
Note 7 - the light of the sun obscuring the light of two or more stars indicates day
Note 8 - the appearance of two or more stars indicates night
Note 9 - the glory of the sun is greater than the glory of the moon
Note 10 - the glory of one star is different from the glory of another - 1 Corinthians 15:41

2. Years - Genesis 7:6 and Genesis 8:13

Now Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of water came upon the earth.
Now it came about in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first of the month, the water was dried up from the earth.

Note 1 - six hundred and one year old and six hundred and first year are identical
Note 2 - years of lives and reigns are to be counted from the beginning of the year, which is always the first day of the next first month, otherwise are written months and days

3. Months - Exodus 12:2 and Exodus 34:22

This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.

You shall celebrate the Feast of Weeks, that is, the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the turn of the year.

Note 1 - the appointed times of the Lord are aligned with the agriculture of the land
Note 2 - the first morning after known conjunction begins the month - 1 Samuel 20:5
Note 3 - the first month begins after the vernal equinox to ensure firstfruits of harvest
Note 4 - the feast of ingathering occurs after the turn of the year or autumnal equinox
Note 5 - Noah and Moses could not know the months by barley, but only by astronomy

4. Days - Isaiah 2:3

And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For the law will go forth from Zion
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Note 1 - the days of the week are to be numbered from the meridian of Jerusalem
Note 2 - the days of the month are to be numbered from the meridian of Jerusalem
Note 3 - a year contains 12 or 13 months, while a month contains 29 or 30 days
Note 4 - the days of week and the days of the month do not always coincide
Note 5 - the first day of the week contains two nights - Genesis 1:1-5
Note 6 - the seventh day of the week is not said to contain a night
Note 7 - only two great sabbaths are said to begin from night and they span two days of their months - Leviticus 23:5, Leviticus 23:32

5. Hours - John 11:9

Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.

Note 1 - the hours once mentioned here are local, seasonal hours, not equinoctial hours
Note 2 - the day really begins before sunrise in the morning and ends after sunset in the evening, which is slightly longer than the twelve hours in the day, because it includes the day of the morning after the disappearance of the one of the last two stars and the day of the evening until the appearance of two or more stars
Note 3 - above the arctic circles one can number the hours of the last left subarctic place

6. Creation of the earth and the firmament - Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:6

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."

Re: Biblical Astronomy

1. Some astrologers are incorrect in grouping the luminaries with the planets (wandering stars) or the planets in a separate category from the so-called non-wandering or fixed stars. It is well known since the time of Ptolemy, that there is no such thing as a fixed star.

2. Astrologers are right in their estimation of the sect of the luminaries, but not of the stars, which are all said to be nocturnal.

3. Ancient philosophers and astrologers were quite off the mark in claiming that the heavens, the luminaries and stars are eternal, when they are in fact created less than 6000 years ago.

4. Many astrologers are mistaken in claiming that the day begins when the sun reaches the degree of the ascendant and ends when it reaches the degree of the descendant. For the stars were made to separate the light of the day from the darkness of the night. Those are correct who divide the 12 hours according to the locality and season. But the days are not to be fixed on the international date line which has no astronomical or biblical significance.

5. Many astrologers are correct in saying that the sun is greater than the moon and stars, those are mistaken who say that the moon is greater, or that the two luminaries are equal in glory. Astrologers are correct in saying that the glory of each star differs from the others.

6. Many modern astrologers are mistaken in believing that the earth orbits around the sun every year and rotates around the universe daily, when it is the sun orbiting the earth every year and the universe rotating around it daily. If that was not so, the effects of the stars would be imperceptible and unpredictable, and it would not be possible to accurately prognosticate events such as hurricanes and natural disasters through astrology.

7. The Bible does say that the luminaries can naturally influence harvests. It seems quite possible that they could influence other mundane phenomena, besides the obvious general influences of the seasons and the winds.

Re: Biblical Astronomy



Note 1 - the scriptures mention three heavens - 2 Corinthians 12:2
Note 2 - there are waters above the firmament as below it - Genesis 1:7
Note 3 - the waters are above heavens and are not clouds - Psalm 148:4
Note 4 - creatures ascending the third heaven are baptised before entering
Note 5 - only the second heaven containing the luminaries and stars rotates

It is quite obvious that Paul wasn't caught up to the heaven of the morning star, so the Bible doesn't support the popular theory of antiquity of the luminaries and stars moving through celestial spheres, which is now obsolete. For the first heaven obviously denotes our atmosphere where birds fly - Genesis 6:7.

Re: Biblical Astronomy

Hi Petosiris,

What do you think the purpose of this quote is for?

“Then God said, “Let there be luminaries in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; and let them be for luminaries in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. God made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary to govern the day, and the lesser luminary to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.“

Do you not see it as a learning tool to teach the basics in astrology?

🙂

Re: Biblical Astronomy

Note 10 - the glory of one star is different from the glory of another - 1 Corinthians 15:41

This too, the “glory” of each star is designed singular to each, with its own strengths, weaknesses and myths of similarities in different regions, and times of earth.

365 stars/entities gave a part of themselves to create said “Adam” they gave a piece of their glory, and of their thorns. The balance of their light.

Re: Biblical Astronomy

Note 9 - the glory of the sun is greater than the glory of the moon

Hmmm, the sun, while strong, obliterates or combusts what comes to close.

While the moon, goes through it phases, of light and darkness, and shares its time with the other lesser luminaries (stars).

Is it greater to work alone? Or with others?

Yes, there is the factual part of the begetting, but, that is of man, in a time in which it was beginning again, after, the last age of Taurus. Around or about 6,000 years ago.

God made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary to govern the day, and the lesser luminary to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.“

Do you not see it as a learning tool to teach the basics in astrology?

Hi Opal,

I have given 10 notes, but let me expand on note 6 in the Hebrew Scriptures. Signs can mean omens (though divination is forbidden - Deuteronomy 18:10-15), but it can also refer to miracles involving the luminaries, such as they standing still for a day - Joshua 10:12-13, the sign of the sun retracing 10 steps given to king Hezekiah - 2 Kings 20:10-11, Isaiah 38:7-8, the sun darkening at the crucifixion of Jesus - Luke 23:45, and the darkening of the luminaries and stars before the great and awesome day of YHVH - Joel 3:15, Isaiah 13:10, Matthew 24:29 etc. But we are told not to learn the way of the nations, nor to be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them - Jeremiah 10:2.

It can also refer to a pledge, as for example in relation to the appointed times (misleadingly translated as ''seasons''), so that the luminaries and stars were created for the purpose of marking the feasts of YHVH, which is extraordinary. Most feasts of the nations are established to honour the turnings of the luminaries, but we see that God created the luminaries and stars through his Word to indicate the appointed times, the biblical feasts of the Lord. For you know that the Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world - Revelation 13:8, whereas the luminaries and stars were created through him who is the firstborn Angel and the Artisan (Demiurge) of the Creator, prophesied by Moses to become a man and die for the sins of the world on the passover between the evenings and to be raised on the third day as the firstfruit of those having fallen asleep. And the days and years are related to these and to the seventh year of release and the jubilee.

This too, the “glory” of each star is designed singular to each, with its own strengths, weaknesses and myths of similarities in different regions, and times of earth.
The text doesn't say that, but it seems to refer to their light. Moreover the apportioning of Deuteronomy 4:19 doesn't refer to idolatry (which God hates), but to the harvests of seasons and to the appointed times which are for all nations - ''And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, YHVH Tzavaot, there will be no rain on them.'' - Zech. 14:17 and ''From new moon to new moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, declares YHVH'' - Is. 66:23

This is not from the word of God, but from the word of men who rejected the Law and the Prophets, and blasphemed the God of Israel through gibberish and sorcery.

Hmmm, the sun, while strong, obliterates or combusts what comes to close.

While the moon, goes through it phases, of light and darkness, and shares its time with the other lesser luminaries (stars).

Is it greater to work alone? Or with others?
The sun doesn't obliterate anything, it just hides the stars with its brightness, in fact the moon does it too (to a lesser degree), especially when it is full, you can't see the more faint stars as you could do during a new moon.

Jesus Christ is the beginning of God's creation - Rev. 3:14, Prov. 8:23, John 1:1, Col. 1:15, whereas Adam and Eve were created through him in his image on the sixth day - Gen. 1:26, not in the image of demons, but in the image of the only-begotten God.

The English word sign today has little to do with the old Latin word for the images of the zodiac.
